Salem, Mo.
Towards the end of this book, Roland was telling the story of how he
ended up killing his mother.
At the end of his story he mentioned he wore the blood stained belt, and that he would later tell the tale of the belts' ending place, as it pertained to the quest for the tower.

Where did that particular story end up?

The belt was cut into19 pieces. 3 pieces went to the sisters of Eluria. 7 pieces went to the muties. And 9 pieces went to the city of lud.

Three Pieces of leather for the Sisters under Eluria
Seven pieces for the Mutant lords under their cave of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men of Lud doomed to die,
One Buckle for the gunslinger in his dark tower quest
In the waste Land of Gilead where the Shadows lie.
One Buckle to rule them all, One Buckle to find them,
One Buckle to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Gilead where the Shadows lie."

I reckon the yellow coats have gathered a few pieces by now.

ELEVATION is now available in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook!
